    I was wondering if the disappearing text messaging apps mentioned in this mashable article are hack proof?

    I am familiar with TigerText, since it is HIPAA compliant so we use it in healthcare, but I was wondering if the disappearing messaging part make it more secure then just the encryption?

    I doubt anything is truly hack proof and all we can hope for is that it's difficult enough to dissuade a would-be hacker......As for your second question, just because it can disappear does not mean it cannot reappear, and therefore, the strength, at least in my opinion, depends the encryption used. I'm only speculating, however, and have never used either app.

    Thanx for the reply. Well, from what I can determine from tigertext.com, they have some of the strongest encryption, so that should help.

    This topic is getting some press due to this WSJ article:
